What Plan B One-Step® is:

  • The #1 OB/GYN recommended brand1* of emergency contraception
  • A backup plan that helps prevent pregnancy when taken within 72 hours (3 days) after unprotected sex or birth control failure. The sooner you take it, the better it works
  • Emergency contraception that contains levonorgestrel, the same hormone used in many birth control pills—and it works in a similar way
  • A single pill taken by mouth, use as directed
  • Generally safe and effective when used as directed. Some women may experience side effects, such as: menstrual changes, nausea, lower stomach (abdominal) pain, tiredness, headache, dizziness, breast pain, and vomiting
  • If Plan B One-Step® is taken as directed, it can significantlly decrease the chance that you will get pregnant. About 7 out of every 8 women who would have gotten pregnant will not become pregnant after taking Plan B One-Step®

  • It won’t work if you’re already pregnant
  • It won’t affect an existing pregnancy
  • It’s not intended for routine use—Plan B One-Step® shouldn’t be used like regular birth control because it’s not as effective
  • It won’t protect you against HIV/AIDS or other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
  • It should not be used if you are allergic to levonorgestrel or any other ingredients in Plan B One-Step®
